Vandals Desecrate Russian Synagogue with Pig’s Head

By: JTA

Unidentified Russian vandals  used a pig’s head to desecrate a synagogue in the southern Russian city of Krasnodar, according to representatives of the Jewish community of the city, located 600 miles west of Baku, Azerbaijan.

They found the pig’s head at the entrance to their synagogue  and  believe the perpetrators are also responsible for English-language graffiti on the building’s external wall, which read, “Happy Tu B’Shvat, Jewish Pigs,” although the Jewish holiday does not occur Jan 15.

Shneor Segal, a Chabad rabbi who used to work in Krasnodar and now serves as the chief Ashkenazi rabbi of Baku, said the community has contacted police with the intention of filing criminal charges against the unidentified perpetrators.

Last month, a pig’s head was left on the doorstep of a synagogue being built in Sevastopol, a Ukrainian port city located 270 miles west of Krasnodar.

    This is the same city of the Boston marathon murderers.
    Maybe the pig's head was the uterus the marathon bomber's mother!

  4. Basha Kline says:

    It must be recognised that the rest of the animal was consumed by the same people who "donated" the pigs head – well you are what you eat! – Although the synagogue appears to have been tainted, one can look at the situation in a different light seeing that the perpetrators did not realise that the remains of the pig has now been converted to Judaism – so this is now a question for the learned Rabbis to decide which is worse the head or the tuchus?

  5. Bill Wingard says:

    $200 worth of cameras & a hard drive would quell further attacks can't anyone at the temple work a screwdriver?
